I believe Billy missed the 11/22/68 show and possibly the 12/7/68 show.

Ah, the famed Columbus show. There is some disagreement about whether or not Billy was there on 11/22/68. Some say no, others swear he was. There is also disagreement about whether this was TC's first show. Some say it's the next night at OU.

Listen for yourself. It's a fantastic show. Lousy sound quality, but you get used to it.

Hmmm. In that case, the only person on the planet who NEVER missed a Grateful Dead show was ... Jerry.

Perhaps technically correct, but from some of those shows I saw at the end of the band's run, he was not really there. A tired junky unable to competently plod his way through another chuck berry cover was one of the saddest things I'll ever see or hear...

So true. More than once I asked "Who is that fat guy and why did he eat Jerry?"

Don't ask me why, but I keep getting a mental image of a giant blancmange consuming Jerry in a kilt while he tries to play tennis.


If you get that reference without Google, good on you!
